“Beautiful...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Even if you are not a Mormon, there is so much beauty in the architecture of this building. It is definitely worth visiting. Visiting around Christmas time is even more fun.

“A must see for every visitor to Salt Lake City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

It is located in Temple Square and is a beautiful piece of architecture. Regretfully if your not Mormon and with proper credentials, you can not enter the facility. During the Holiday Season, the entire Temple Square area is illuminated by millions of lights placed on every branch of every tree. Truly a sight to see. Temple Square for the Mormons is sort of like the Vatican for the Catholics. Both worth visiting at least once.

“Tour is interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Even if you're not Mormon, take the Temple Square tour. The sister missionaries are very polite and enthusiastic, but they're understanding when you say you're not interested in LDS literature. The tour is interesting and helps you learn about the LDS religion, an important thing if your'e living in or visiting Utah.

Be sure to go in December when the Christmas lights are up. It's absolutely gorgeous.

This is one of the most beautiful places in the Salt Lake valley. It is a must see. It is amazing to thing of the effort the pioneers put in it to build it.

“The Salt Lake Temple”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Temple Square is a great place to visit, the temple itself is closed to visitors so the attraction is in the grounds and other buildings that surround it. To trace the religious history of Utah, visit the Catholic, and Epsicopal cathedrals as well as the Presbyterian and Methodist churches all built in the same era as the Mormon temple.
